Nevada Youth Hunt Question

Postby Goosecrazy » Thu Sep 27, 2012 12:26 am

Apparantly the new gut at the Greenhead hunt club is clueless, not trying to attack him but somebody over there needs to educate him. Correct me if I am wrong, but a youth hunter under 12 does not need a pasture pass as long as they are with an adult who has a pasture pass, correct.

I'm pretty sure it transferred to NDOW. They just let Ken stay there in the same capacity.

Hunters 15 and younger do not need a permit and are allowed to go as a young hunter with a permit holder..high school students (16-19) are required to purchase a student pass ($25) to hunt...NDOW has not taken over the operation, still under same agreement and will be for several years to come. Bob Wilson is the new caretaker and is working hard to get the system down.. there is always some confusion the first few weeks with a new caretaker hopefully he will do fine..Ken will be missed for sure.

Hi Gary,

The Carson Lake and Pasture property is actually owned by the Bureau of Land Management but is operated as part of the Newlands Irrigation Project by the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR). NDOW manages some of the water flows (those directly associated with the wetland areas), manages marsh vegetation, public use facilities etc. through a Memorandum of Understanding with BOR. The Greenhead Gun Club administers the fee program (hunters are charged to hunt on the area) through an agreement with BOR. The cattle grazing program is administered by the Truckee Carson Irrigation District through an agreement that they have with BOR. Bottom line……it’s a very complicated arrangement but that’s how it is right now.

With that said, Public Law 101-618 was passed by Congress in 1990 and that authorizes the federal government to transfer the land in question to the State of Nevada (essentially NDOW) for management as a Wildlife Management Area. A short 22 years later, that has not been completed but the process is inching forward and hopefully that transfer will be completed while I’m still alive. If the transfer is completed, then all management of the property would be under NDOW’s authority.

I hope that answers your questions.

correct ..they have not taken over yet..Caretaker is an employee of the Greenhead not NDOW.. Salary is paid by the club..you stated that they took over and kept Ken around..Current operating situation has not changed since 1977..Prior to public law 101-618 it was operated under what was called the Fleischman agreement and the Carson Lake advisory committee- consisting of NDOW-TCID-Greenhead..Permit structure has been the same (with the exeception of a $10 increase to season pass) since 1978.
Proir to 1977 it was held in lease by the Greenhead club under two renewable 25 year leases, starting in 1927..Even when under lease it was basically a public hunting, with a fee structure similar to the current one.

Would you mind identifying your affiliation with the entities involved? You seem pretty sure of yourself with only 1 day on this forum and 2 posts.

Since you are answering questions about Greenhead, and very knowlegible. I got another one. Why are ATV's prohibtited out there, 1st I am not advocating taking ATV's off the roads currently used by vehicles, but that place turns into pea soup when water gets on the roads. So why can't an ATV be used only on the roads currently used for travel. It should were be safer to use an ATV than have someone go off into a canal in a vehicle and drown.
